I have been learning how to use our Nikon D80. I'm not very good at it yet, but trying not to get frustrated. Lighting is a huge issue with this lens. It is a non-automated old macro lens, so you can't use flash to augment the light. Here are a few attempts at some macro engagement ring pictures... Just in time... My wedding ring arrived yesterday. I'll blog about it tomorrow.
I took these photos on top of the scarf I knitted over Christmas (first knitting attempt ever), and on top of a really great bottle of wine.
